Note: the Flickr Collections thumbnails that I use for this site’s home page have been a long-time casualty of a massive server transition after SmugMug bought Flickr. As of August 12, 2020, the thumbnails have been restored, but at the moment seem to only work when actually on Flickr’s site. They don’t yet appear to be coming through the API used by the plugin for displaying Collections here. Hopefully that will get resolved soon and Collection thumbnails will finally be back here. Either way, the links do work—only the thumbnails are missing, so you can still navigate into a year to view those photos.

Before I had my waterproof digital, some friends and I would fool around…er, excuse me, *pool* around with a waterproof disposable camera at my apartment pool, laughing at crazy faces and hair flying every direction while trying to keep our eyes open. The first eight photos are from 2001 and was the very first time I'd ever used a waterproof camera. Not bad, considering no one had goggles and we were all tired from a beach trip and using the pool to just clean off and relax. The next 13 were in 2002 shortly before the wedding of my friends, Luis and Marisol, who loved crazy photos and wanted to do this as their engagement photo session. The last 25 from 2003 was jokingly branded "Spanish Weeki Wachee" by other friends who later saw the photos.
